Dianne brings honesty, integrity, skill and grace to all real estate transactions. Her reputation for smooth and easy transactions is well known in the East Bay. She doesn't believe she is a sales person, rather a facilitator in the process of buying or selling a home. Negotiating and contract writing are some of the top skills she brings to the table in a transaction.
Born and raised in the beautiful Napa Valley, Dianne is a 4th generation Californian. Her great-grandfather was a stowaway on a ship sailing from Chile to San Francisco in 1850 with dreams of finding gold. He did find it in the form of land, the golden hills of Northern California.
Dianne has been in the real estate business since 2002 and earned Top Producer awards often on a monthly basis as well as a yearly basis many times since then. She has closed in excess of 100 transactions during her time as a Realtor.
Before moving into the real estate arena, Dianne taught elementary and middle school. She acquired an M.A. in Education as a Reading Specialist in 1985. Becoming a Literacy Facilitator in Fairfield Unified School District training principals, vice principals and teachers K-6, Dianne honed her skills in the use of patience, listening, humor and teaching when needed, as well as sitting back and letting the "pupil" move forward on their own.
When not engaged in real estate, Dianne spends time painting abstract art, traveling, working with a friend in the fashion industry, fostering animals from SPCA and/or other rescue shelters, as well as dining out and going to movies with friends and clients.
